Great opportunity for a PR & Media Relations professional to join the London office of a US law firm. Working as part of the firm's marketing and business development team, the PR & Media Relations Specialist will work to implement a media relations strategy for the London and global offices. Key responsibilities will include developing relationships with business and legal journalists; drafting press releases; answering media enquiries; tracking legal industry developments, managing media coverage and sharing best practice.

Candidates must have at least three years' Media Relations/PR experience, preferably from a law firm as existing relationships with the legal press are highly desirable. Experience of working in, or dealing with, a partnership environment is a requirement. Strong writing and influencing skills are a must, along with self-motivation, confidence and the ability to manage multiple projects. You must be proactive and personable, positive and enthusiastic, and a real team player.
